Malayna Bailey, second-year graduate student at Marshall University, received her first-place award for “Prognostic Statements, Client Success, and Clinical Caution.” Ashley Peltier, fourth-year student in Northeastern University’s accelerated BS/MS program, received her first-place recognition for “Ethical Misconduct in Positions of Power: Maintaining Personal Integrity and Patient as Priority.”
Both students receive a complimentary student registration to the 2017 ASHA Convention, a one-year membership to the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) and $750.
Third place—NSSLHA membership and $250—went to Sarah Kennemer, first-year graduate student at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, for “Bouc Émissaire” (“scapegoat,” a tongue-in-cheek reference to patients and clinicians who may suffer because of administrative policies). All three winners are enrolled in speech-language pathology programs.
The ethics essay competition is open to students enrolled in any communication sciences and disorders undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and entry-level graduate program in the United States. This year, students wrote about client abandonment, presenting and resolving an ethical challenge created by the inappropriate transition of clinical services.
The essay competition, part of ASHA’s efforts to enhance ethics education, encourages students to think about ethical decision-making and creates greater awareness of situations that could pose ethical dilemmas.
The 2018 essay competition topic relates to disclosure, misrepresentation and conflict of interest.
